That's the new word around the house. Eva learned that word and now uses it liberally to describe everything from her supper to the outfit I picked out for her to the mess on the floor. If it wasn't so funny it'd probably drive me crazy.
She's getting so excited for Halloween and her birthday and Christmas. The next few months are going to be pretty crazy I think. Eva's going to be Tinkerbell for Halloween. I looked and looked and looked for costumes for Lauren and Maria and couldn't find anything. My mom suggested dressing them as a brown blob and a purple blob and call them Peanut Butter and Jelly. I wasn't too keen on that. Finally I walked past the Barbie aisle at Target and they had those Barbie dress up outfits. I got them some of the Fairytopia costumes. They're a little big, but they're pretty cute and better quality than most of the Halloween costumes. This year I went to Sam's to get Halloween candy and got 3 huge bags instead of 2 since we ran out last year. I think we're going to have even more kids this year since we still have a lot of evacuees living around here and I'd bet they don't have a lot to do to entertain the kids.
Apologies in advance to Kristen and any of my other Florida friends, but Louisiana is feeling a little bit of Karmic Justice right now. After Katrina, and to a lesser degree, Rita, all these people in Florida (particularly Jeb) kept talking about what a bunch of loser idiots we were in Louisiana because we don't know how to handle a hurricane and how they were soooo prepared and nearly experts in how to handle such a catastrophe. Well, well, well, what do you know? No water, no ice, no gas, no elecricity, lack of phone service, different agencies not being able to communicate, dumbasses that didn't/wouldn't/couldn't evacuate. Anyway, so I think there were a lot of people offended by the comments (which I think were really political but a lot of people took them personally) and now are feeling a little better today.
